In our Apple MacBook Air 2019 review, we were impressed by the laptop's crisp, high-resolution screen and powerful sound. Although we wish it offered Thunderbolt ports, we gave it an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars for its good endurance.
On our Laptop Mag Battery Test, which consists of web browsing over Wi-Fi at 150 nits, the MacBook Air lasted 8 hours and 51 minutes. That's over a half an hour longer than the 8:19 premium laptop average.
This MacBook's Y-Series Intel Core i5-8210Y CPU is enough for light/everyday work, but don't expect to run super-demanding programs.
As for connectivity, the MacBook Air has two Thunderbolt 3 ports on its left side, one of which is used for charging the notebook. It also has an integrated 3.5mm jack for attaching wired headphones or a speaker.
